MGMT 330 G Syllabus Fall 2011 The teaching method is a combination of lectures, case studies, class discussion seminars, and team projects, with the emphasis focused heavily on case materials. Student preparation, presence, and participation are essential for this teaching method to work. Case preparation must go beyond descriptive facts, as we will not have time to explain or reiterate case information in the classroom. In the discussion, however, you must back up your arguments with the facts of the case. If you are unprepared for the discussion of a case or have to miss a class for a reason beyond your control, please let me know at your earliest convenience.
